HELSTON MUSEUM WINS BRONZE AWARD AT CORNWALL TOURISM AWARDS
Helston Museum is delighted to announce that we have won bronze in the “Small Attraction of The Year” category at The Cornwall Tourism Awards having entered for the first time! Now in its fifteenth year, the achievement celebrates outstanding contribution to the tourism industry in Cornwall and recognises the hard work of business throughout the county.
Katherine Ashton, Curator said “We are all really excited to have won this award for Helston, placing us on the map as a “must visit” tourist attraction in Cornwall! To be named third best small attraction in the whole of Cornwall is a great achievement. Also a huge thank you goes to our fabulous volunteers as without their amazing contribution to our success, we would not be the same. ”
